Ingredients

For the Filling and Apple Cups:

  • 2 Red Delicious apples or your favorite type of apple
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons shredded sweetened coconut
  • 3 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1 lime cut in quarters

For the Toppings:

  • 4 tablespoons shredded sweetened coconut
  • 4 tablespoons granola
  • 3 tablespoons walnut pieces
  • 4 dashes ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

For the Filling and Apple Cups:

  • For the Filling - In a medium size bowl, add yogurt, shredded coconut, and dried cranberries. Mix together, cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator while preparing the apples.
  • For the Apple Cups - Cut the apples in half widthwise.
  • Using a small spoon (or a ¼ size teaspoon), scoop out the core and seeds. Scoop out a section of the apple that’s a bit larger than the diameter of the core (about two inches diameter).  Set aside for a moment.
  • If you happen to scoop out too much of the apple at the bottom and you see a small whole, just take some of the apple that you removed and put it back into the bottom of the apple to cover the space.
  • Squeeze lime juice from each quarter of lime over the flesh and center of each apple (this should help prevent the cut area of the apple from turning brown).
  • Filling the Apple Cups - Stir the yogurt filling again and add it in the cavity of each apple. Also add the filling to the top of the apple so it resembles frosting on a cupcake.

For the Toppings:

  • Sprinkle the remaining shredded coconut on top of the yogurt filling. 
  • Then sprinkle cinnamon on top. Next, top with granola and walnut pieces.
  • Just before serving, drizzle maple syrup on top.

Notes

TIP:

  1. If you happen to scoop out too much of the apple at the bottom and you see a small whole, just take some of the apple that you removed and put it back into the bottom of the apple to cover the space.
